It turns out Joel Embiid was not available for the 76ers on Tuesday night in Utah. Philly wasn’t on a back-to-back but the built in game off was part of the sports scientists’ master plan to keep Embiid healthy this season.
Philly looked comfortable in his absence.
Richaun Holmes stepped in to start at the five and take on the significantly bigger Rudy Gobert. Holmes held his own and let the Sixers’ perimeter weapons win the game.
Dario Saric and JJ Reddick shot the ball lights out from downtown and Ben Simmons spent the evening facilitating and locking up whomever he had to chase down on the defensive end.
Philadelphia held onto a hot start and coasted for what ended up being a seven-point win in Utah.
Embiid will be back for Thursday night’s game in Sacramento as the Sixers look to win their sixth game in a row. With their big man back in the middle, Philadelphia will be a strong favorite to do just that.
But the Kings also did something good on Tuesday night, defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder by eight points in Sacramento.
Paul George and Carmelo Anthony combined to go just 8-for-33 from the field and Russell Westbrook went 7-for-21 himself.
The Thunder could only manage 86 points against a Kings team that isn’t renowned for its ability to lock down opponents.
The win snapped Sacramento’s seven-game losing streak and gave it win number two on the season. DeAaron Fox held his own against Westbrook, scoring 10 points and throwing eight assists in 24 minutes but I’m chalking this game up as much to the Thunder’s woes as the Kings playing good basketball.
Looking head to the game on Thursday, I just don’t see anybody on the Kings roster who will make Simmons work hard. Fox is a great athlete who will end up being a terrific NBA defender but he’s way to small to cover Simmons.
George Hill will be equally overmatched. And when Simmons is rebounding and running, Philly is tough to beat.
